Bearden gets top job with Rome City Schools
The second time around for Fayette County School Superintendent Jeff Bearden was a charm. Bearden has been hired to be the new superintendent at Rome City Schools in Floyd County.
The Rome City Schools Board of Education on Wednesday named Bearden to the school system’s top job, according to the Rome News-Tribune. The school board vote was unanimous.
Bearden had been one of two finalists for the job. He was also a finalist for the superintendent’s job with the Floyd County School System.
Bearden will end his two-year stay in Fayette County on Dec. 31 and, according to reports, will take the reins in Rome beginning Jan. 15.
